Planting: Upend pot and ease plant out gently, place into hole without disturbing roots and backfill to just above level of potting mix. A layer of mulch improves growth. Apply sulphate of potash quarterly to promote flowering.
Pots-n-tubs: Use premium grade potting mix whether potting or potting up. Good drainage is essential. Use slow release fertiliser as per instructions. Apply potash quarterly. More water will be needed in hot weather or if plant has been in por for some time. Best planting - Spring and summer.
